Pro Women's Soccer in '08

The Women's United Soccer Association is planning (hoping, imagining, delusional about) the re-birth of the WUSA in '08. The WUSA ran from 2001-2003 and lost a bit of investor money ($40 million).

The official plan calls for 8 teams:

All of the above cities have MLS franchises except for St. Louis.

I hope it works out for them, but my suspicion is that it is still a money "down the drain" proposition. People barely care about the men's game, and I don't see a groundswell of demand for this entertainment product.
